In 2015 two friends and new mothers, Charline and Lekisha, discovered their common love for baby-wearing. Like many new Mums they found the closeness and security offered by baby-wearing to far outweigh any other means of baby-carrying. Disheartened by the lack of fashionable, natural and lightweight options on the market they decided to create their own.
The goal was simple, create a line of comfortable to wear carriers from natural, breathable fabrics that don’t compromise on style.
First came the Wrap Carrier, made from a Bamboo/Spandex blend (to give that all important stretch for comfort) and available in a range of fabrics to suit any parent’s style. The Wrap Carrier was so well received that it was soon followed by the Ring Sling made from pure, natural, breathable linen. The Ring Sling takes baby wearing to the next stage, while it is perfect for newborns, just like the Wrap Carrier, the life of the Ring Sling also takes you into toddlerhood, extending your baby wearing experience, and keeping your little one closer, for longer.
VIXSA soon added to their line of carriers a petite version so older siblings can be “just like Mum or Dad”, a range of beautiful journey cards and a sweet collection of keepsake toys. Also available are a range of t-shirts for Mum. Made from the same soft and natural fabrics used to make the Wrap Carrier, the t-shirts bear slogans relatable to all parents.
The VIXSA story is told through a beautifully curated selection of carriers, designed to help all parents experience the intimate connection achieved through baby-wearing, as well as the freedom of hands-free carrying.
VIXSA - The Name
When it came to deciding on the name of the brand it was clear that it should incorporate the names of those dearest to us, our children. VIXSA is a combination of each of our eldest daughter’s names, Victoria and Savannah, also the names of our first, and best selling signature wraps; Victoria Skies and Savannah Nights.
